dd24/Key-Systems warns of phishing attacks

...
Quote:
Dear Customer,
several phishing emails are currently sent out by unknown persons.
Please do NOT respond to these emails! There has been NO change in our system.
These emails are phishing attacks to acquire sensitive data.

The messages can have a subject line such as:
"For the owner of the mailbox y x z @key-systems.net"

The text of the email could be as follows:
- - - - - --
Dear user of the key-systems.net mailing service! We are informing you that because of the security upgrade of the mailing service your mailbox (y x z @key-systems.net) settings were changed.
In order to apply the new set of settings click on the following link:

xxx

Best regards, key-systems.net Technical Support.
- - - - --

The emails refer to changes of Key-Systems or dd24 mailboxes or server but this is definitely not the case. Please do NOT respond to these emails!
We do our best to contain the phishing attacks.

Your team @ domaindiscount24.net

Re: dd24/Key-Systems warns of phishing attacks

This is widespread. I'm even getting them for domains that I control the mail servers for myself. Which makes it very easy to spot as a phishing attempt.
